By now it's pretty clear that Infinity Ward knocked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare out of the park but if player reactions weren't enough, how about some data from Activision, who revealed that multiplayer numbers hit new highs in just 50 days.
"Modern Warfare has outpaced all previous Call of Duty multiplayer experiences of this generation in hours played, hours per player and average daily players on its way to becoming the most played Call of Duty multiplayer in the first 50 days since launch in six years", they wrote.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has apparently passed $1 billion in sell-through, and it gets better - more than 500 million hours were spent in multiplayer across 300 million multiplayer matches.
Activision is clearly delighted with Infinity Ward's success and they announced many more content drops in the upcoming period, starting with today's.
Infinity Ward's creative director Patrick Kelly said, "We're bringing our players together to play across all platforms and that continues today with a new wave of content coming to everyone for free [...]Starting today Vacant and Shipment are in full multiplayer rotation. Players can also jump into new Gunfight maps, play a new Special Ops mission and play fun new modes, starting with Cranked."
In case you didn't catch it, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is getting a hefty content drop today at 6pm GMT, which includes a free gift pack that you'll find in the "Just for You" section. Awww.
